Wal-Mart Sold Cannabis Christmas Tree
If you're a true herbalist, you'll have a marijuana Christmas tree!
And Wal-Mart was a retailer that had them. When consumers caught wind (no pun intended) of the popular chain retailer selling a “Weed Marijuana Leaf Christmas Tree” this season, the chastising isntantly began. And as of Wednesday of this week, the 7-foot faux Tannenbaum tree was pulled from the website.
The tree was valued at $250 and was described on the Wal-Mart website as: "This Pot Leaf Christmas tree will ‘light up’ the room and put your mind in the right head-space for holiday cheer. You’ll be able to relax and giggle at the marijuana leaves and decorate it as you please. This alternative Christmas tree is perfect for personal top shelf life at home or as a medical dispensary decoration. Green Wishes and Happy Holidhaze!”
Weed News stated that Wal-Mart is, “trying to cash in this year on the cannabis movement like many other retailers.” The continued to say that charging $250 for the artificial tree is “more than the cost of three ounces of actual cannabis at some dispensaries in Oregon.” While deputy editor for the cannabis website Leafly, Bruce Barcott, questioned, “Which is cheaper, a seven-foot Walmart Weed Christmas Tree or an actual seven-foot cannabis plant?”
Crystal Oliver, a farmer from Washington state, said if she were to grow a 7-foot cannabis plant, she would probably sell it for $200. (For the plant, not the flower)
Although the faux Christmas tree has been removed from inventory, Wal-Mart still sells marijuana leaf shaped cookie cutters for a more reasonable price. And if you're still interested in having a cannabis Christmas tree, they are available on eBay for the same price.
